The watch that was shipped to me has scratches on the bezel around the 20 min mark and a small dent on the left side of the watch case. They were not immediately obvious until I examined them under a light. If possible, I will upload some pictures of the defects to the photo gallery here.
Also, I noticed that the crown, which is a screwed-down design, has been left in the open position. Because of this oversight, either from the factory or from a previous buyer who subsequently returned the item, moisture or condensation may have entered the watch.
I suggest future buyers to look out for these problems. I am arranging to have the watch replaced by Amazon. This is the first time I am buying from Amazon Japan but I have many previous experience with Amazon USA and they have been 100% positive.
